  • 2022
  • Under the Omicron turmoil, lots of harsh anti-pandemic measures make the citizens from this metropolitan feel suffocated. The artist admires the time-transcendence mystery from the “940920”movie. Through the expressive method of Walter Benjamin’s “remembrance and reminiscence”, the lifeguards with tanned skins, who suffer from the closure of swimming pools during the pandemic, are resettled to the Kowloon Walled City between the 1970s and 1993. Let these lifeguards enjoy the emancipation of their personalities inside the pub of Kwong Ming Road within the “triple non-administrative realm”. Let them search for the nourishment of love. Let them enjoy how to serve as a “Homecoming Dad”.
